Bay Area Green Tours will kick off a series of farm tours with an autumn trip along Highway 1 to the San Mateo Coast. The upcoming event on Saturday, September 28 will feature a full-day visit to the area's eco-friendly farms.
Bay Area Green Tours creates field trips for adults and kids that focus on solutions related to energy, transportation, water, green building, waste and agriculture. With its offering of family-friendly farm tours, the organization is "reaffirming its commitment to educating the public on sustainable agriculture," says Program Director Heather Gordy.
Tour highlights include:
Harley Farms in Pescadero, home to 200 alpine goats and known for its award-winning cheese.
Pie Ranch, a center for sustainable farming practices where pie ingredients like wheat and fruit are home-grown. Visitors will enjoy a buffet lunch prepared by their chef.
Pigeon Point Lighthouse, one of the tallest on the West Coast at 115 feet, has guided sailors since 1872.
The cost for the day-long tour, including lunch and a cheese tasting, is $99 for adults and $68 for children 12 and under. Transportation will be provided on a luxurious biodiesel bus, with stops in Berkeley, San Francisco and Half Moon Bay. For more info, click here.
